Talking Coming to Europe for a shred.... Help me!!!

Howdy, my names Brody, 27 years old, experienced boarder in the Canadian Rockies over the last 10 years. Anyways im headed to Germany for a few weeks over Christmas and after that i have a month or so to spend in the Alps. Im bringing all my gear so im not worried about getting stuff just was wanting to know where you guys think i should spend me time? Its going to basically be over the month of January and i am really clueless as far as the Alps go. Some people told me Chamonix is unreal? as well as 3 Valley both in France?

Any other suggestions? Plz any knowledge would be of great help. Also anyone know of any sweet mountain towns that would be good to chill in? Prob a Hostel, and marijuana friendly?

Cheers, looking forward to hearing from you guys on the other side of the world cause im confused!

This.

If you want powder you're better off being flexible and chasing the snow.

If you want piste mileage then we've got loads of places that only Whistler can compare to.

I'm based in Toronto, and have only been once to the Alps but next time I go back I'm going to try really hard fit in a trip to do the Vallee Blanche, its on my bucket list, and it's one of the signature runs in Chamonix.

My first choice would be Zermatt, Switzerland (Matterhorn); second choice Cortinia di Ampezzo, Italy. Research it!
